Springtime Shades

FashionTrends to Try

Springtime Shades

Spring is finally here (according to the calendar … maybe not the weather report), and that means that (hopefully) warm, sunshine-filled days will become the norm. What does that call for? Sleek shades, of course. Sunglasses are an absolute necessity for shielding your eyes from the rays and, sometimes more importantly, avoiding making eye contact on Locust. Not only a warm weather staple for their practicality, flattering sunglasses are as important to sunny day ensembles as florals, flowy shorts, and bright lipsticks. It’s proven: basic looks go to the next level with fun shades.

Though certainly my favorite part of warm weather outfits, sunglasses often pose problems for many face shapes. Finding a flattering pair that is equally as stylish is no easy feat. But luckily, there are hundreds of styles out there, from retro to classy to sporty and beyond–and there’s a pair for every budget. Here are a few of my favorites!


Cat eye frames are abundant at Asos. These tricolor shades are only $21!

Burberry’s retro sunglasses come in many colors and retail for $195.

And last but not least, the aviator, a classic style popularized by Ray-ban ($200).
